Devil's Bowl Speedway is a nearly half-mile auto racing track in West Haven, Vermont. It is the longest length of the three remaining tracks in Vermont.

It is the only NASCAR sanctioned track in the state.

History

The track was opened in 1967 and promoted by the late Charles "C.J." Richards. Richards was well known for his close affiliation with other tracks, Fairmont Raceway, Albany-Saratoga Speedway, and Airborne Park Speedway. Richards sanctioned racing though his Champlain Valley Racing Association (CVRA). The track opened with a clay surface before being paved in 1971. Clay returned in 1975, then the track was repaved in 2010.

Recent

Mike and Alayne Bruno purchased Devil's Bowl Speedway from Richards in November 2011. Since then the track has continued to host the normal races and the series that come to the venue. The track is the only NASCAR sanctioned track in the state, with Modified and Late Model races in the Whelen All-American Series.

In 2014, a 3/10-mile dirt track was constructed in the infield of the asphalt half-mile. The track will host 14 asphalt races and 13 dirt races in 2016.
